The older styles of formal dinner and tail suits from the Victorian era were still being made with the same attention to detail into the 1960s. There was up to 55hours work to fully tailor, interface a suit to fit and hang perfectly.. The technology fabrics, and expertise are almost gone.


Even the later less detailed work taken for granted in every light weight tailored suit of the 1950's and 1960's is becoming rare.
